Happy 2009!!!

Hi gang! I'm back, I'm back!!

Hope everyone had a fantabulous holiday. I was honestly dreading this week (hate post-holiday) but I have to say, I'm kind of excited to get this year going... new rules, new goals, new start.

Hillsy and I had a "Family Summit" yesterday (his idea). So what happens in a family summit you ask? Well, it's sort of a looking back and planning meeting. We didn't have any hand outs or anything but I couldn't help but take notes. I highly suggest you plan one of these with your loved one, it's a great way to start the new year.

What do you need? Well, all you need is some uninterrupted time, an agenda, tea or wine, an open mind and don't forget to take a couple of honest pills beforehand. We'd like to have these more often, maybe every quarter or so... We walked away feeling really excited about this year, we're on the same page, and we're both dedicated to helping each other achieve both our joint and individual goals for the year.

Oh and I started 2 more blogs - i know, insane - to complete my Heart Network of blogs! From now on, I'll be posting all my food posts over at Heart Homecooked and for all you tech-challenged folks out there... Hillsy and I started a joint blog - Heart Hi-Tech. Our aim is to educate the beginner and to provide simple, tips, news and tech information to non tech savvy folks out there. I hope you enjoy them both!

PS. You'll notice that I will be transferring Lifeflix recipes over the Heart Homecooked so if you've been with me from the very beginning - I apologize in advance for the repeats!

Sammi: please feel free to offer any of your favorite recipes!

Issey: thank you!! And yes, we need to do something fun. Oooh how about a class at MAKE workshop or something??

Ces: glad we have a fan out there!

Z: our goal is to turn you into a geek just like us :)

Fab: knew you'd love that one. I wanted to hold it at a more luxurious locale but the Mandarin Oriental in Miami was full :) so we had to settle with the comfy couch in the living room. Maybe summit 2010? I guess we'll have to see in 9 months whether that check box was checked or not... j/k
